Since I’m still not feeling well, I’ll leave you with this blog post I quickly composed over the weekend. Its totally not health and fitness related but still fun!
I have a pair of boots that I love but the traction on them is nonexistent. I’ve actually fallen in them in the store a few times. I liked them too much to get rid of them and those little sticky traction pads you buy at the store just didn’t help. Rob had a great idea to hit the hardware store and get some real traction tape to try.
All you need is some 3M traction tape, scissors, a pen, and something to clean the bottom of your shoes.
Step 1: Clean the bottoms of your shoes to make sure your tape will stick. I used alcohol wipes.
Step 2: Trace the shape of your shoe (don’t forget the heel!)
Step 3: Carefully cut just inside your line (to make sure it doesn’t overhang). Hold it up to the shoe and trim anything extra.
Step 4: Affix your perfectly sized traction pad to your shoe!
Step 5: Happily wear your shoes!
We’ll be back to regular programming tomorrow or Wednesday. This is by far my busiest week this semester on top of having a deathly horrible cold that I caught Wednesday night (worst I’ve had for as long as I can remember). I’ll be taking it easy this week in regards to workouts but I’ll do my best to get back onto my normal eating plan (mostly-Paleo). Off to conquer the week!
